The county prosecutor will throw the book at him to make an example of him. The kid is an idiot and knew what he was doing. But people claiming that they "felt imminent fear for their personal safety"...come on man! Really? Quit being such a pussy!

As much as I think this was in poor taste, I doubt there's any chance of any charges actually sticking here.

No, but likely the goal is not to make him suffer long-term for his bad decision.

Now ratchet things up to pants-shiatting intensity for awhile is where they're headed with it.

Agree

The kid's full retard for doing the stunt

And the people who panicked are at least 3/4 retard

/also kinda surprised the kid didn't get the shiat kicked out of him

If this provides nothing else of use, this case establishes just cause for kicking the crap out of anyone wearing a Guy Faulks mask.

Did he even say BOO?

That was in bad taste, which should not carry a criminal penalty unless you want to lock up half the patrons of Walmart. (Or is bad taste required at Walmart?) Nor should anyone have harmed him for what was basically a bad joke: the proper response is to shake your finger and tell him "That is a very bad and tasteless joke. Save it for the frat house."

Unfortunately America has been taken over by brainless and castrated sheep and hot-headed fascistoids claiming to "protect" them. It's disgraceful. Anyone who was scared shiatless by that should lose the privileges of driving, voting and reproducing, and anyone who wants to use it as an excuse to knock the fark out of a silly misfit should be taken out and shot.

Nixon would be a liberal now; the terrorists have won.

How do I know this was a white kid?

The refreshing change from the post 9-11 BS where attention whores thought it was funny to dress as osama and everyone here defended it calling those who disapproved "rayyyyyyyyyyyyycist". You race baiters have no race card to play so this time the kid's a fool.

Has anyone mentioned he was lucky not to be shot? Seriously, when listing out the possible adverse reactions to a prank you're about to pull, on the list for this one should have been, I could be shot. That would be motivation enough to change my mind, think of a different prank.

I am surprised someone didn't just football tackle him and go to town on his face. I would be tempted. It would be pretty easy to say you thought you where acting to save lives and because you felt threatened.

§ 18-3-206. Menacing

(1) A person commits the crime of menacing if, by any threat or physical action, he or she knowingly places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury. Menacing is a class 3 misdemeanor, but, it is a class 5 felony if committed:
(a) By the use of a deadly weapon or any article used or fashioned in a manner to cause a person to reasonably believe that the article is a deadly weapon; or
(b) By the person representing verbally or otherwise that he or she is armed with a deadly weapon.

Thin. The state's case is thin.

of course the charges won't stick. But the kid should have to sit in a hearing room filled with families of the shooting victims, and right there in the front row should be his parents.

[ ] A. shiat my pants and start crying.
[ ] B. Realize a person just said two words.

I understand that in our pants shiatting society a seems like the proper choice but the correct answer is B. The kid was being an ass but people really need to calm down. A weapon (being brandished) or aggressive actions is something to fear. Anyone who thinks the reactions are normal or rational must adore the TSA.

On WHITE people; mass shootings of Injuns were standard operating procedure from the founding of Jamestown till around 1900. Maybe it's only horrific when suburban Caucasians are the targets?

People need to read more history before hyperbolizing out of context.

By getting even more stupid.

Yeah it's going to get dropped or plea bargained down to like community service. I don't see this going very far. That said the folks there were just straight up cowards.

This. Very much this.

But I'd like to thank subby for luring bloody-minded fascistoids out of the woodwork so I can "Ignore" them.

By the way, has anyone seen Quatermas and the Pit? I hear the original BBC serial was better but it's harder to find.

We live in a world where the punishment SHOULD be someone beating the shiat out of him for being a dick...but in a world where someone doing that would be arrested for assault, and sued by said dick. That leaves charging the dick with a crime.

Remember, we wouldn't have so many laws if people behaved themselves.
